It was a late arriving crew this am. The northeast anchorage boys “leg-pooled” together, but later commented that they may have chosen the wrong day for that. There is never a wrong day to do something for the betterment of mother earth. The clock struck 5:30 and Brother at Law led us all on an enjoyable mosey down Trousdale, up the bus loop with some stretchy exercises and ultimately back to the parking lot to circle up.
SSH, WMH, GM were all done in cadence along with some mountain climbers, merkins, arm circles each way, air presses, baby seal claps and 1000 burpees. All of that is true except for the burpees. After counting off 1s and 2s, we were off to grab coupons and line up at the edge of the pavilion for some hill work.
THANG PART 1 – Soggy Bottom Boyz
We will be celebrating the Coen Brothers as me and Brother-at-Law are just a couple of Co(Q)’N Brothers in law. A savagely curated spotify playlist made up of hit songs from Coen Brothers movies accompanied our work during the first half of the morning.
All 1’s would run down to the holler, perform 3 reverse burpees (aka Soggy Bottom Boys) and run back to the pavilion. During this time, all 2’s remain in the pavilion enjoying music and performing AMRAP of the exercises listed below. Flapjack, repeat for all exercises. Coupons uses for all exercises.
– Squat / Thrusters
– American Hammers
– Deadlift / bicep curls
– Chest press w/ legs 6″ off the ground
– Kettle block swings
– American Hammers
– Squat / Thrusters
THANG PART 2 – Oh Brother at Law, Where Art Thou?
CCR takes over, 2’s return coupons to their home, all pax circle up in the parking lot. I informed everyone that we were going to play a little game called “Oh Brother at Law, Where Art Thou?” We gave Brother at Law a 2 minute head start as he took off running toward Sir E. The rest of us performed 10 burpees on the minute for 2 minutes before we took off after him. The goal was simply to find him and bring him safely back to the school. With the entire neighborhood at his disposal, I feared it may take a long time to find him. With increasing grumbling, the Donuts-led group made their way down Hogan and we decided to run through the Crievewood United Methodist parking lot on the off chance he was there doing burpees on the church steps. By pure coincidence and a stroke of luck, we found him the first place we looked and still had about 10 minutes before time ran out on our workout. After 20 more burpees, we decided to make our way back home with a speed bump of sorts at every driveway we encountered. I believe there was a total of 12 driveways. With 10 merks followed by 10 tuck jumps, my math skills tell me there was a total of 120 reps of each.
With only a few seconds to spare, we squeezed in 10 Flutter Kix in cadence before it was time.
After name-o-rama, we started a trial run of something called the 6th Man. The basic concept is that whoever is 6th during the count-off will be featured similar to how an FNG tells us about himself before being named. Today’s lucky winner was Gresham. We learned many things about him. He is a lawyer and his brother in law is T-Cell. He lives behind the school. If you want to know more, just ask him. He is really nice.
TN Can Ruck, WARPATH and Stonewall all going on this Saturday. Please bring canned goods to as many posts as possible this week to help supplement the various drop boxes at breweries.
A true pleasure to co-Q with my brother(at law). Really glad to see Yumi (and Dupree) and Lumbergh back out for more. My apologies to those who thought part 2 was anything more than a short play that we used to disguise a run down to the ag center and back. Come out Friday to see if Yumi and Dupree make it out together again. Dupree will be at the helm, so you know it will be a good one.
Until next time, on behalf of my better half,
